Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions.
Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS!

To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories.
I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though!
My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my Great, Great Uncle…

Snoooooowklahoma!!!!

Did you know it is snowing in Oklahoma?  We received about 19" last week and TODAY my area was hit with another 21"!  
Awesome!
The pic above is from last week. So, what happens when I am stuck in my house for two weeks?  I cook bake!  Last week I made Dulce De Leche Cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies, brownies and sugar cookies!
My sweet daughter helped me make the sugar cookies so I wrote her a message in the flour with one of the cutouts.    :)
School has been out for NEARLY 2 weeks now, I am guessing we will be out the rest of the week so it will be 2 weeks by the time everything is said and done.
Next week we are supposed to be back up in the 60's!!  WooHoo!!  Can't come soon enough because my pants are getting TIIIIIGHT from all of this baking.....and eating.
Oh, one more shot.  People go nuts here when it snows and think the world is coming to an end or something!  Check this out!
